The report is part of Office of Radiation Programs (ORP's) dose assessment program for evaluating the radiological quality of the environment. Special emphasis was placed on acquiring and summarizing the most recent dose data available. For some source categories, dose information was available for calendar year 1976, for others the most recent data go back to the early 1970's. No effort was made to calculate or extrapolate from existing data to supply missing dose information. Instead, the concern was for the availability of data and what the existing data provide for individual and population dose information. However, gaps in data coverage and areas of inadequate data coverage are identified when found.
